Follow the steps below to download, install, and activate a data set from the Alteryx Downloads and Licenses portal. Alteryx compresses data sets using 7z, a file archive format. You can download 7zip from www.7-zip.org. To manage a license for partner data or any product license that uses SRC (.srclc) licenses, visit Manage Partner Data Licenses.

Download a Product

To download a product...

  1. Sign in to the Alteryx Downloads and Licenses portal at licenses.alteryx.com.
  2. In the Product Downloads area, select the product to download.
  3. In the Download Packages window, select the version of the product you want to download.
  4. In Downloads, select the plus sign to display a description of the product.
  5. Select the link for the product to download the file.

Install on Local Machine

A local installation requires administrator privileges and adequate disk space. To install the data set locally...

  1. Download, install, and activate a base product (Alteryx Designer or Server).
  2. Download a data set zip file and extract the contents of the zip file to a local folder.
  3. Run AlteryxDataInstall.exe.
  4. Follow the prompts to install the data.
  5. Select the data sets you want to install.
  6. Select any previously installed data sets you want to uninstall. Select Replace to auto-select all data sets you want to uninstall.
  7. Browse to the path where you want to install the data sets.
  8. If you have not already activated the license, select Options > Manage Licenses to activate it. Visit Manage Licenses for more information.

Prepare a Network Install

A network installation allows Alteryx Designer users to point to a central location instead of a local directory. Users can be online or offline. To prepare a network installation...

  1. Create or identify 2 folders:
    • A temporary folder for extracting the contents of the zip file.
    • A shared network folder for users of the data set.
  2. Download a data set zip file and extract the contents of the zip file to the temporary folder. Delete this folder after you have installed the data to a network folder.
  3. Run AlteryxDataInstall.exe and select all data sets you want to install.
  4. Select Prepare a Network Install and point to the shared network folder where you want to install the data. The user will run the AlteryxDataInstall.exe from this location.
  5. Select any previously installed data sets you want to uninstall. Select Replace to auto-select all data sets you are updating.
  6. Install the data sets.

Users will navigate to the AlteryxDataInstall.exe located in the shared network folder when they register to use the installed data sets.
